Former FAITH OR FEAR guitarist Chris Bombeke has teamed up with guitarist/vocalist Shane Gellert of ONE IN THE CHAMBER to form a new project called TRAGEDY IN PROGRESS. Bombeke will play bass in the group, which also features Gellert's CHAMBER bandmates Joey Mionie and Ted Vandermark. The Atlantic City, New Jersey-based act is currently writing music and will start playing regionally and shopping the material during the summer of 2007.
ONE IN THE CHAMBER was one of the top unsigned talents in the mid-Atlantic region before drug addiction and personal issues forced the band into hiatus. FAITH OR FEAR was an acclaimed up-and-coming talent in the late '80s, having released its debut album, "Punishment Area", in 1989 through Combat Records. After the LP's release, FAITH OR FEAR toured the U.S with SEPULTURA (the first North American tour ever for the Brazilian metallers).
